JIM GOODMAN reigns supreme as Bowls Club Champion after lifting the British Games Club trophy for the fourth time, beating Ronnie Ventilla in the final 12-7.
As befitted the occasion, it was a nip-and-tuck final, which saw Jim build an early lead, hang on to it throughout a tight, low-scoring match and ultimately secure the victory on the last but one of the scheduled 14 ends.
In addition to claiming the title for the fourth time since 2011, Jim also completed a season ‘double’ of winning the Men’s Championship and Club Championship.

Now is a good time to learn the game
As the 2018-2019 season draws rapidly to a close and many of our swallow members prepare to return home to the UK for the summer, we fervently hope to see them all back in Tenerife in the autumn – Brexit permitting – for the start of the 2019-2020 season in October.
Sadly, as things stand at the moment it seems unlikely that there will be sufficient demand for summer bowling this year.
However, we may reconsider if enough people come forward to register an interest. Please contact captain David White on 922 889 572 or 645 293 798 for futher information.
We have improved facilities to look forward to in the new season – and over the summer if bowling proves viable.
Between now and the end of the season is a good time for any new players wishing to take up the game of bowls to come along and give it a go.
We provide all the equipment you need to play and we also offer free taster sessions and free coaching for beginners.
